What Is Shuttle Mediation?
When a mediator makes arrangement for the meeting of both the parents at different locations or offices at the same time, this is called shuttle mediation. Shuttle mediation is very important in some situations when the statements of both the parents have to be taken into consideration and they must correspond to each other.
Shuttle mediation is done when there is a need to reconcile all the statements of both the parties that include the well wishers of both the parents. It is important to see that both the parents provide the correct information with the mediator.
The mediator shuttles back and forth constantly to get all the information accurately. Shuttle mediation can be used in most situations and can be very successful.
There is another situation when both the parents have difficulties in facing each other because of some complications while separation. The parents have some space to respond to the questions and are not under any pressure and can have some time.
In the normal situations, the mediator sits down with the parents and all of them discuss the situation together in order to provide financial support to the child. Shuttle mediation can prove to be very important and useful in some cases where the parents are not comfortable with each other after separation.

The most important decision is regarding the contribution that each parent has to make for child maintenance.
The implementation of shuttle mediation is very important because the statements of both the parents can provide support to the mediator while taking a decision regarding the child’s life. In normal situations, the mediator sits down and discusses the finance with the parents together.
There are some situations when parents openly discuss the finance with the mediator without the other partner present. They hesitate to share their views in front of another person than the mediator.

If no answer is there with the mediator, the parents can approach the court for reaching a decision. The experts recommend that you must hire a mediator as the formalities of the court will waste your time and efforts.
The shuttling process can be slow as the reactions of the partners cannot be seen as being separate from each other by location.
The mediators can use both types of mediation by first implementing the normal one and then implementing the shuttling process.
